Lesbian couples

Every year, VivaNeo helps lesbian couples from around the world to become parents. Our entire foundation is built around the desire to create families for lesbian couples and single women. Since then, we have expanded our clinics to offer all types of modern fertility treatments, and today we are among the leading clinics in Denmark. We have extensive expertise in counselling about donor selection, we have no waiting list, and Denmark’s liberal legislation allows us to provide treatment to women up to the age of 45. We offer egg donation and double donation (in which both the sperm and egg are donated), and we make sure that your treatment is adapted to your own physical and psychological condition. This is a big decision, and it can be a long process, but our committed staff – doctors, embryologists, nurses and midwives – will not let you out of their sight during your journey towards creating a family.

VivaNeo opened the first insemination clinic for lesbian couples

In 1999, VivaNeo opened StorkKlinik which was the first private clinic to offer insemination to single and lesbian women. We are proud of our history, where Midwife Nina Stork made it possible for lesbian women to become parents at a time when the law did not permit doctors to treat women who were not married or living with a man. 

A homely atmosphere for women

From day one, Nina Stork designed the clinic based on the needs she herself felt were important to a lesbian couple. The result was a warm, pleasant ambience with single rooms that allow time to rest. We also have small lounges with photos of babies that were born with our assistance, a noticeboard and a large map of the world that shows where the women come from. You can see lots of other lesbian women who are in exactly the same situation and stage of their lives as you.

Choosing donor sperm

We have vast expertise regarding the whole process related to donor sperm. We have a close co-operation with the sperm banks, and we have also gained lots of experience around the process lesbian women have to go through when choosing donor sperm.

We will discuss choosing a donor with you. For example we will ask you: How much do you want your child to know? What will tell your child and everyone else?

For some people conceiving a child through a donor is a process that awakens very strong emotions. Emotions that they were not prepared for. A little further down this page, you can listen to a podcast and see a video from a lesbian couple, Anja and Gro Hammerseng-Edin, who talk about their experience of the process around choosing a donor.

Network for lesbian and donor children

As more and more donor children come into the world through the assistance of VivaNeo a need arose for this group to meet. Since 2006, donor children and their families—generally lesbian and single women—have been able to meet up at the annual Stork Event in Copenhagen, which has attracted large numbers of families from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and other European countries. This creates a special community, and it’s special for the children to meet other children who also have two mothers.

Parents of donor children in school

More and more children of single women, lesbian and heterosexual couples who were donor-conceived are now going to school. How does the parent of a donor-conceived child prepare for their child starting school?
